Nitrate Pirate

I've just found the negative to these photos www.flickr.com/photos/mildlydiverting/9028033/in/set-7215... in an old photographic paper box in my parents' cupboard. The strip is folded, and one frame is badly torn.

 

I'd really like to scan these to get better quality images, but written along the side of the negative is a fatal phrase - NITRATE FILM

 

Does anyone know anything about how to handle this stuff safely? What are my options?
